The Guggenheim Museum opened to the public
In June 1943 Frank Lloyd Wright received a letter from Hilla Rebay, the art advisor to Solomon R. Guggenheim, asking the architect to design a new building to house Guggenheim´s four-year-old Museum of Non-Objective Painting. The letter stated: I need a fighter, a lover of space, an agitator, a tester and a wise man...I want a temple of spirit, a monument! The project evolved into a complex struggle pitting the architect against his clients, city officials, the art world, and public opinion. Both Guggenheim and Wright would die before the building´s 1959 completion. The resultant achievement, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, testifies not only to Wright´s architectural genius, but to the adventurous spirit that characterized its founders. -1959

Francois Truffaut, French film director, died

Royal Academy held an exhibit of works of art by Giacometti
Hot from its success at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, where it broke attendance records for a temporary exhibit, "Alberto Giacometti: 1901-1966" arrived at the Royal Academy(sponsored by Goldman Sachs). The works of Giacometti are better suited to Edinburgh, both in spirit and scale, but nothing can alter his right to be considered one of the giants of 20th century art. And yet his reputation has been questioned in London. "Albert the thief", "figures that do not add up to a genius" screamed the headlines. Luckily for Giacometti, he died in 1966 aged 65, when his reputation was unassailable. -1996
